Re: Newbie needs help with WAMP server, please?
For Wamp go to Apache>Service>TEST PORT 80
You will get a reply telling you if port 80 is free, if it is not free reply back here.
If Wamp is running correctly the system tray icon will appear all white with no yellow or red markings.
It sounds like you are trying to FTP into Wamp.
You do not FTP into Wamp on the local machine.
You should go to c:\wamp\www and add a directory for your website like c:\wamp\www\website1
Then go to Apache>Alias Directories>Add an Alias.
Follow the instructions for adding an Alias then after you add an Alias publish your site directly into the c:\wamp\www\website1
You can then go to http://localhost/
[ALIAS YOU JUST CREATED] to see your website.
Gerald you owe me big time...
